But end users are only consistent in one way: they just want it to work.

So this then implies that you have to go and change the file extension for every next version of the format that is not backwards compatible?

That would be a very wise plan. Luckily very few popular file formats in the world are not backwards compatible across versions. TIFF is an odd duck. TIFF is more like a cookbook than a format.
